Police said the a woman driver, 46 blacked out while heading makai and her car hit the police officer's vehicle on Puuloa Road at 7:10 a.m.. The officer, 45, was hospitalized in serious condition while the woman was listed in good condition, police said.

The officer is described as a 12-year HPD veteran assigned to the Kalihi patrol district.

Puuloa Road between Kilihau Street and Mapunapuna Place was closed for two hours while the accident was being investigated.

Police had said earlier that the accident was apparently a head-on collision, but investigators determined the woman’s vehicle sideswiped the officer’s subsidized vehicle, whichwas heading mauka.

Anytime you drive with oncoming traffic, gotta watch out. People do get medical conditions, black out, etc. They coming towards you, so have to be alert. Several weeks ago on Big Island an elderly visitor driving had a medical condition, crashing head on into another vehicle. This morning, this woman blacked out. Just be careful and prepared people. Don't know when and where something like this will happen. Hope this woman and the police officer have a speedy recovery.

10-4 olos73....Now days you need to be alert (look forward and around) at all times, when crossing intersection with car or just plain walking on side walk. No take for granted you safe because a car could jump curb and bang you.
